Pittsburgh Lawyers Representing Victims Of Prostate Cancer Misdiagnosis
Prostate cancer is one of the most curable cancers if it is detected early. However, misdiagnosis of prostate cancer can result in some men not receiving the treatment they need and others receiving treatment unnecessarily.
I'm attorney John Gismondi, founder of Gismondi & Associates. We are lawyers who represent families in Pittsburgh and throughout Pennsylvania who have suffered losses because a medical professional misdiagnosed prostate cancer. A powerful lawsuit can provide full and complete compensation for you, and it can also send a strong message that will help to prevent some other person from being injured by a similar mistake or accident.
Was Your Prostate Cancer Misdiagnosed?
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland in males that makes seminal fluid. A diagnosis of prostate cancer is a frightening event that leaves the patient with a difficult choice. Treatment can cause sexual impotence and bladder control problems. If left untreated, the prostate cancer can be life-threatening.
There is a simple test, called the PSA level, that can be used to detect prostate cancer. Your family doctor should do annual checks of your PSA level if you are over the age of 40. If the patient's PSA is elevated, the doctor should perform a biopsy. However, lab errors and hospital mix-ups can lead to tragic results.
A Lawsuit Provides Compensation ... And More
We wish that we could turn back the hands of time and undo what has happened to you or your family. Unfortunately, no lawyer has that power. However, with a successful lawsuit we can reduce the burdens you face by obtaining full and complete compensation for everything that you have experienced as a result of your injury or the death of a family member ... mounting medical bills, lost wages, physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, and perhaps most importantly, the loss of the relationship and companionship of a loved one.
We will also fight for compensation to cover everything that you may face in the future. Failure to diagnose cancer cases often involve long-term needs for things such as future surgeries, specialized equipment, personal attendant care and much more. Our goal is to provide full compensation for all of those needs so that you or your loved one can enjoy the very best quality of life possible and make the most of a difficult situation. After all, that is the least that you are entitled to.
Aside from providing you with full and complete compensation, a lawsuit can do one other very important thing: It can force changes to be made by the doctor or hospital that caused the injury to you or a loved one so that no other person or family has to go through what you have.
Our Experience In Prostate Cancer Misdiagnosis Cases
Our lawyers represented a man from Pittsburgh who underwent a biopsy and was told by his doctor that he had prostate cancer. He underwent surgery, which unfortunately left him impotent. Ten days after surgery, he learned that the hospital had made a mistake. His biopsy had been mixed up with the specimen of another patient and he really never had cancer. Therefore, his surgery was unnecessary, yet he was left impotent for life. Our lawyers obtained a multimillion-dollar recovery for this man.
